The Barn is the last but one property up a winding mountain road in a very quiet area, but has a small food store just four minutes drive away, and within ten minutes' drive you will find three bars in the village of Beaufort, and the famous Kate Kearney's bar and restaurant. The spectacular Gap of Dunloe and Killarney's beautiful national park and lakes are within twenty minutes' drive. As we are a new listing on TripAdviser please check us out on Airbnb ie to see our guests reviews. The front door leads into a tiled utility area with washing machine, space for coats and boots, and plenty of storage for clothes. The compact shower room with shower cubicle, loo and basin is also in this area. Towels supplied. A semi glazed door leads into the main living area which is bright and modern,...The Barn is the last but one property up a winding mountain road in a very quiet area, but has a small food store just four minutes drive away, and within ten minutes' drive you will find three bars in the village of Beaufort, and the famous Kate Kearney's bar and restaurant.

The front door leads into a tiled utility area with washing machine, space for coats and boots, and plenty of storage for clothes. The compact shower room with shower cubicle, loo and basin is also in this area. Towels supplied. A semi glazed door leads into the main living area which is bright and modern, cosy and quirky. A fully equipped kitchen occupies one corner, with everything you need whether you're microwaving a ready meal or cooking a full roast dinner. A table and chairs provide a pleasant place to eat. The woodburner keeps the Barn warm and snug (logs, kindling and firelighters are all provided). A comfortable sofa bed and TV complete this space. A selection of books, DVDs/Blu-rays and games are also provided for wet or lazy days. Patio doors look out onto part of MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, and the window has a pleasant view of Strickeen mountain. The sleeping mezzanine is reached via custom built stairs. Please note that these stairs are much like a ladder, steep and therefore not suitable for anyone with mobility issues - the sofa bed can be used in this instance. The mezzanine is equipped with double bed, bedside tables and lighting. It has low headroom (you can't stand up) but enough to sit up in bed and enjoy a cosy cuppa! Patio doors open onto a small, private patio with garden furniture for warm days. Grassed areas, trees and shrubs are complemented by a tumbledown stone outbuilding, and stone steps lead up to the lane behind the Barn, your own private gateway to the surrounding countryside. White Cottage Barn is attached to White Cottage, the owners' home, and has been recently converted from an old stone cowshed and stable. You will share the driveway and parking, but the Barn has its own separate entrance and garden area, and is quite private. The main garden is currently a work in progress, but you are welcome to find a sunny corner to sit at any time. Tessa and Steve are there if you need them, but will always respect your privacy. They will be happy to give advice on where to visit, and a folder of suggestions is provided. Killarney and Killorglin are lovely nearby towns with excellent shops and a variety of places to eat. But you don't even have to get in the car to enjoy the stunning surroundings. From your front door you can wander out into the verdant green fields behind the barn, criss-crossed with ancient mossy walls and gnarly trees. Alternatively, walk up the lane and through a gate and you are on the fells beneath the craggy heights of Cruach Mhor and the Big Gun Ridge. A half hour ramble will take you to two little lakes hidden away in a valley beneath Cnoc an Bhraca, or take a picnic and find a place to sit by the tumbling mountain streams and waterfalls. This area is off the beaten track, so you are likely to have it all to yourself. Apart from the sheep and mountain hares! Please note that White Cottage Barn is in a very rural mountain area. Our water comes from a mountain spring and there is a chance that the water supply can be intermittent during long periods of dry weather. This isn't usually a problem as Ireland of course is renowned for its generous rainfall, but it can happen, and at such times we need to conserve supplies where possible. We may have to request that you take short showers and not use the washing machine, but we will always supply you with bottled drinking water.More
